  1. Is there such a thing as an inverted Nor'Easter? Was half expecting to see it decide to make the winds go clockwise around the LP for good measure.
  2. You're joking right.....
  3. Where are people getting this nonsense? This is like the 3rd or 4th time I've heard from different sources that people are all talking about the big snow next week. Are the Twitter "mets" on crack somewhere? HUGE difference between "more favorable pattern coming soon" and "MONSTER EPIC SNOWMAGEDDON LOCKED IN....PLEASE DIE NOW TO AVOID THE FUTURE SUFFERING". Hoping tonight's runs start moving us towards something more concrete!
  4. February Banter Thread

    Well I care about your opinion and evidence -- FYI for everyone else, PSU and I are going to take the discussion offline to avoid hack/troll syndrome. Looking forward to an intellectually honest, good faith discussion (and at this point I'm not 100% sure we're even on opposite sides of the topic).
  5. February Banter Thread

    Oh please.....you have certainly demonstrated you can hang with the best of them in the weather arena. I'd say you deserve some kind of honorary MET degree just on the time you've invested in personal research and analysis.
  6. February Banter Thread

    I'm fine with that -- mods feel free to move if there's a better/more appropriate location. Figured banter plus already being discussed was OK....
  7. February Banter Thread

    I have the utmost respect for your weather skills and knowledge, but on this topic, you're either very misinformed or you're just reacting emotionally and not thinking this through. As someone who has worked closely with and trained with law enforcement professionals, I can tell you that the majority of the LE community would agree that providing an OPTION for SOME teachers to CHOOSE to take some additional training and be armed if they so choose is probably one of the only proposals so far that actually has any merit (as well as any supporting evidence). That is, if we actually want to reduce the number and body count of future shootings (vs just talk it to death or pass some feel-good do-nothing laws). It is well-documented that pretty much the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, and the quicker that can happen, the better the outcome. BTW -- did you see the latest news that there was actually a sheriff deputy outside that school who just stood there and let the shooting happen? Unbelievable...... So as not to hijack the weather banter, PM me if you want to discuss further -- I'm happy to discuss. Normally let this kind of stuff just pass by, but from reading your posts over the years I know you are an intelligent, logical individual (vs just a troll). Reasonable, respectful debate is usually fun and both parties can be better off for it.

    Thank YOU! Can't believe people were treating poor April so thoughtlessly....we shouldn't accept spring until May at the earliest...ESPECIALLY if we have PSU driving the bus.
  9. PD3.5 Lite Obs and Nowcasting

    Maybe the coastal forms and decides it wants to go SE for a change and check out KY? 32/32, pure rippage ongoing.....gorgeous snow sticking to everything FWIW -- radar was wrong here at the onset, showed green and rain for a while but there was never any rain --- pure snow from the get-go.

    Continuing to rip fatties, driveway gave in, everything covered, maybe half inch on the ground so far. Between Berryville and Purcellville. Very nice to watch.
  11. PD3.5 Lite Obs and Nowcasting

    Ripping fatties for the last half hour, no sign of letup so far Cartopper is reached; grass and leaves giving up quickly
  12. Weekend Snowfest/Rainfest/Mixed Mess?

    We always enjoy the company! Rt 9 heavily brined on VA side, nothing on WV side yet. So when you crest the ridge into WV, you can basically just sled the entire way down Rt 9 into Charles Town. 29/23 here.
  13. PD3.5 Lite Obs and Nowcasting

    29 degrees, light NW wind....very clear skies, hopefully good for additional cooling
  14. Weekend Snowfest/Rainfest/Mixed Mess?

    March 25, 2013 redux? This one could be a lot of fun if it turns out to be a positive bust during nowcasting with LWX scrambling to increase WWA/WSWs mid-event. What's the current tally right now: Euro/NAMs, maybe RGEM (end of range still going) v GFS/CMC/UKIE/ICON....ens spreads all over the map RGEM/EPS/GEFS?
  15. Weekend Snowfest/Rainfest/Mixed Mess?

    Permission granted for you to feel better. Apparently the Euro delay plus Jebman's positive energy are paying off.....
